Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII

During the PlayStation Experience keynote Shinji Hashimoto, producer at Square Enix, announced that the 2012 pc port of Final Fantasy VII will be released on PlayStation 4 this Spring. Well, this was kind of a disappointment ... We already can buy the game on PSN (PS3, PSP, PS Vita), SE Store and Steam. Kotaku has called this 'proberly the worst troll in recent video game history'.

It's been 20 years since the launch of the original PlayStation, which was released in Japan on 3 December 1994. Sony has questioned around 10,000 gamers in Japan what their favorite game is in PlayStation history and which game should receive a remake.

Final Fantasy VII

Square Enix has announced a new game for iOS and Android devices called Final Fantasy VII G-Bike. This game takes the mini game from Final Fantasy VII completely re-imagined with customize options, leveling and item collecting. In the original game from 1997 you have to play this mini game during the story line and you can play it later in the Gold Saucer.

Final Fantasy VII

Today Square Enix has officially released the PC version of Final Fantasy VII on Steam included with the same features as the 'enhanced' version that was released in the Square Enix Store in August 2012.

Features in the 'enhanced' PC version of Final Fantasy VII are 36 achievements (from winning your first battle to beating Ruby Weapon), cloud saving and a character booster. The game can be bought for €12.99 / £9.99 / $11.99 from the Steam page. Quite expansive still for an almost 16 years old game.

However, fans that have purchased the 'enhanced' PC version of the game in the Square Enix Store are now complaining that they want a Steam key and don't want to purchase the game again. I kind of agree with that. Square Enix, stop being a money grabber and listen to your fans!

Final Fantasy VII

Just before the start of the gamescom Square Enix has launched the downloadable PC version of Final Fantasy VII in their store.

This 'enhanced' version of the original PC version, that was released back in 1998, features 36 achievements, cloud saving, character booster and is optimized to run on current PC's.

The downloadable version normally will cost € 12,99 / $ 11,99, but now has a special launch price of € 9,99 / $ 9,99 till 12 September. European fans can get the game here and United States fans here.

Final Fantasy VII

Square Enix has finally announced that Final Fantasy VII will get a downloadable version for PC that can be acquired from the Square Enix Store. This version will feature 36 achievements, a character booster and cloud saves.

The PC version of Final Fantasy VII was ported and released back in 1998 by Eidos Entertainment and it seems this new version has been tweaked to run on modern PC's.

Square Enix has launced the official website and released a trailer (which can be viewed below). The release date will be announced soon.

Final Fantasy VII

Yesterday Square Enix has registered the domain name "finalfantasyviipc.com", which looks like something is happening around the PC version of Final Fantasy VII, which was released back in 1998 by Eidos (which is part of Square Enix since 2009).

Maybe the game will receive a digital download via Steam? More info about the domain name can be found here.

Final Fantasy VII

Bad news for Final Fantasy VII fans that want a remake of the original. In an interview in the Japanese magazine Famitsu character designer Tetsuya Nomura said that a remake of Final Fantasy has no priority.

 

There are a lot of people who want a remake of Final Fantasy VII. However, new titles take precedence. We work our hardest to make something that might be even better than Final Fantasy VII.

Further he said that Yoshinori Kitase is the future of the series and the new Final Fantasy must overcome the Final Fantasy of the past.

Square Enix

To celebrate the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XIII-2 next week Square Enix has temporary reduced the price of Final Fantasy titles that are available in the European PlayStation Store.
